Responding to the borders bill

Featured Blog

The Nationality and Borders Bill is a threat to the right to seek asylum enshrined in the 1951 Refugee Convention, and is a very concerning piece of legislation. It will criminalise ‘irregular’ asylum routes, whilst failing to provide safe and legal routes.

Latest from ACH

At ACH, we focus on building individuals’ resilience in the labour market, upskilling and supporting refugees and migrants into sustainable, higher-level employment to develop their independence and help their integration into life in the UK. Over the past few years, we have become concerned about the effect of Brexit and Covid-19 on EU migrant communities, who often fall through gaps in service provision for refugees and migrant communities.

The system-changing SEESI project, which aims to create a Europe-wide revolution in refugee integration, has come to a close. We have managed to accomplish far more than we set out to when we devised our initial project goals with the help of our partners; Folkuniversitetet, FISPE, Dimitra, Rinova, Ballymun Job Centre.

We are thrilled to have received a generous £600k of funding from Comic Relief to launch the Change Makers Project with RAMP. Together, we will work towards our vision of an enhanced refugee support environment within which policy is truly driven by service user need.
